China is emerging from the crisis

Being the first country to be affected by the corona virus pandemic, to the point that some are blaming it for its responsibility, China was the first one to emerge from the sanitary crisis, even if some clusters are reappearing, and to regain, before the other major developed countries, a growth rhythm which will allow it to quickly erasing its economic consequences. We know the skepticism what statistical data generally arouse and the comments which accompany the declarations of Beijing leaders are most of the time critical. Yet the prestigious medical review, the Lancet, has just published an unequivocal study ...

Environment and the Ecologists

The environment evolution is based on unquestionable statistical data and on physical laws which have been elaborated and confirmed as centuries went by. Ecologists, them, are politicians. They are looking for pleasing electors or some economic interests which support them. They prefer announcements effects, unnecessarily alarmist or deliberately provocative messages to get attention and to be heard, and even to be invited to TV talk shows. Then governments have, or at least they believe it, to take into account their assertions, even when they are not based on anything, to take some of their proposals and, at the end, to ...

The natural gas future

Tensions between Greece and Turkey and the American sanctions against the completion of the Nordstream 2 pipe line in the North Sea are revealing with a full daylight the new importance and the geopolitical challenges linked to natural gas. 20th century had been the oil century with major political and economic consequences.

Le nouvel Etat-stratège

LE NOUVEL ETAT STRATEGELe dernier livre d'Alain Boublil, le nouvel Etat-statège (Editions de l'Archipel) est paru le 5 février 2014.

Le livre apporte les réponses de son auteur  à la question qui est, en France, au centre de tous les débats politiques: "Que peut-on attendre de l'Etat aujourd'hui ? " Et il formule plusieurs suggestions sur l'exercice du pouvoir tirées de son expérience passée auprès de François Mitterrand. Observateur de l'économie mondiale comme conseil des nombreuses grandes entreprises qui ont fait appel à lui, il trace un portrait de la France d'aujourd'hui bien moins pessimiste que ce que l'on entend parfois, à condition que chacun fasse preuve de lucidité sur ses propres comportements. 

Les exigences ont certes été exacerbées par la crise. Mais y faire face est de plus en plus difficile car l'écart s'est creusé entre les attentes de chacun et la réduction des marges de manoeuvres publiques du fait des règles internationales, de l'endettement et des contraintes environnementales.

En dix chapitres, Alain Boublil dresse un bilan sans complaisances, prend la mesure des possibilités et des limites de l'Etat et il ouvre des voies nouvelles pour l'action publique. Il évoque le sauvetage de l'euro, le fardeau de la dette et le ras-le-bol fiscal, l'Etat-patron de Colbert à Jean-Marie Messier, le retour du complexe vis-à-vis de l'Allemagne et les nouveaux outils de l'Etat-stratège dans la mondialisation face aux défis industriels, aux enjeux de la transition énergétique, à la "dictature du CO2" et à la révolution du gaz de schiste. Et il met en garde contre les dérives de l'Etat-spectacle, qui gènent l'efficacité de l'action publique et les facilités de l'Etat-guichet qui débouchent sur le clientélisme.
